Prices of Alex Rodriguez collectibles might be plummeting, but that's not stopping one memorabilia dealer who claims to have the largest collection of the New York Yankees third baseman's game-used items.

In the past couple days, in fact, he has posted almost 100 Rodriguez game-used items on eBay, ranging from more than 70 signed jerseys with various inscriptions, to bats, cleats, socks and even shower shoes.

A bat Rodriguez supposedly used to hit home run No. 535 has a "Buy it Now" offer of $17,999.99, while a helmet and cleats Rodriguez used from the final game at Yankee Stadium last year is offered at $13,999.99 and $7,999.99.

There's not much that isn't used and signed. The seller is selling a used and signed travel bag for $999.99, an arm guard for $699, a beanie for $699.99, socks for $149.99, and perhaps the strangest item, shower shoes for $799.99.

"These shower shoes (sic) very nice use," the listing reads.

We asked the seller if he was liquidating the memorabilia because Rodriguez memorabilia isn't exactly flying off the shelves these days. He said he is not. As for the authenticity of the items, one memorabilia expert told us that many Rodriguez game-used items are sold through a memorabilia dealer in Miami, where the dealer's listing says he is from.
